24 November 2007 It's been quite a week. I am alone. I work alone, I eat alone. Once my replacement leaves, I will be more alone. Alone and I don't do so well together. With much love, writing from the end of the earth My entire life I've been the daughter of a U.S. soldier. It was only recently that I fully understood the impact this would have on my life. Some days, just watching the news makes me cry. I can laugh and joke about politics and people going overseas, but then there are times when even a short war scene chokes me up. Reality sets in all over again, and I find myself worrying for hours on end. Where is she? How is she? When is she coming home? It's a daily reminder that my mother is overseas and that any day, any time, I could get a phone call saying something happened. Unless you've felt this feeling, you have no idea how far into the pit of your stomach it reaches. In my mother's letters, she writes about how alone she feels. Well, I feel it too. I'm alone here, missing her. Just Keep Faith is D.R. Whitmoyer's collection of letters and e-mails from her mother, a United States solider. She's pieced them together-along with photos and short anecdotes of her own-to offer an emotional glimpse into life on the other side of the world. Military families and civilians alike will no doubt find hope and comfort as they view the reality of war through the eyes of one of America's brave heroes.
